Subject Re: Java DB now available

The main added value is support.  At this point we don't do anything but 
ship a stable release of Derby (this current download is a distribution 
of 10.1.1).

Part of the charter of Java DB is to not "fork" from Apache Derby.  At 
some point Sun may add value on top of Derby (like Cloudscape does with 
its installer and other things) but we wouldn't ship our own "special" 
version of the bits that come out of Apache.
